Happy Monday, y’all! It’s only 2pm and I’ve already taken two very long naps. Guess I rested too hard yesterday! 😉
I got so many comments asking for more make-up videos on the Charcoal Eyeliner post that I figured I’d better do it! My sister Willa was so kind and filmed and edited the video of my daily make-up routine this morning. Only 4:33 minutes long this time. 😉 With a little explanation of why I think makeup is okay at the end. 😀
And as much as I’d love to do more videos for y’all, I don’t really use any other kinds of make up! Sometimes I’ll switch blush out for the bronzer, or attempt a smokey eye with eyeshadow for an evening event, but I’m really not qualified to do any more makeup videos. 😛
The recipe for the bronzer can be found here, but I don’t recommend the site, so I’ll post the recipe for you:
Customizable Homemade Contour Powder
- 1 Tbsp cinnamon powder
- 1 tsp cocoa powder
- 1 tsp nutmeg powder
- 2 tsp cornstarch
When you’re adjusting this recipe to your desired darkness, remember:
Cinnamon adds glow, cocoa adds depth and darkness, and nutmeg adds a
sunkissed brown. Cornstarch spreads it all out and lightens it.
Adjust the levels of ingredients to your liking and mix well in a
small bowl, making sure to break up any clumps with your fingers.Store in an airtight container.
And, here’s an outfit. I wore this yesterday to hang out at some friends’ house. Had some great discussions and realized we don’t know our Bibles well enough when my unbelieving friend from Chick-Fil-A was quoting verses at us!
The sermon yesterday was on Philippians 4:6-8. An encouraging exhortation that we need to be thinking, and deliberately meditating (deep thinking, not “mmmm” with the pinkies 😉 on “whatever is true, whatever
is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely,
whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy…” The books we read, the music we listen to, the people we hang out with, the noise we fill our lives with– it all has an effect on the kingdom of Christ and we need to dwell on beautiful, truthful, and excellent things.
Well, have a great day! What was your sermon about?
